George R.R. Martin, the author behind the "Game of Thrones" phenomenon, has revealed that he has missed not one but two deadlines for his next novel, "The Winds of Winter."
Fans are therefore concerned that the forthcoming season six of the HBO series, which airs this year, will contain some serious spoilers.
"The Winds of Winter is not finished," Martin confirmed in a blog post Saturday.
"Nor is it likely to be finished tomorrow, or next week. Yes, there's a lot written. Hundreds of pages. Dozens of chapters. … But there's also a lot still left to write. I am months away still... and that's if the writing goes well."
